You might note there is no patreon plug. Thats because I no longer have one.

You mentioned somewhere that patron dropped you over something you said. Can or will you talk about it either here or elsewhere?

@Lessa: No, I dropped Patreon, not the other way around.

Basically, Patreon has decided that free speech does not matter. Sargon of Akkad, while a real asshole, made his living there. The platform removed him despite him being entirely within their terms of service because he dared to use words that hurt people's feelings.

There was a time in history when being a fag hurt people's feelings. There was a time when being a tranny hurt people's feelings. A whole lot of people crushed a whole lot of free speech because they felt it was the right thing to do.

Who gets to decide who is right? The moral majority? The feminazis? The moderate middle? Free speech is free speech. Patreon decided that only the left is allowed to speak on their platform - I am not left. I am moderate. I cannot, and will not, let them have a cut of any money I might make.

That, and since I havent been able to write for a while now, I cannot justify taking people's money in general. It has been said that an author keeps making money for their book sales for all of time even when they stop writing. To me, Patreon is more like a promise of making more stuff, as opposed to a "stuff was already made".

.......anyways.

That's basically patreon, that I can grasp. It seems people use it as incentive to get peoples money under incentive they keep shelling out product. An author makes books to put another world, a different thought out there and only if it sells, it's out there and they get royalties. Personally it's a difference between that and patreon. I do believe there arw different ways to use Patreon based on what one is doing. Youtubers use it as I described up there, but they cater to fans bg offering merch to supplement tbwir Adsense money to make sure people stay interested enough to watch their channel by offering them a reason to watch... ad nauseum, paradox blah. Then there's what Jocilyn is doing, or did; use it to help actually publish Rain initially. Get it to publish books, books sell, slight return of investment to make more as they then generate their own revenue. But this is just theory, I've never considered patreon. Hell; I got an Etsy account I yet to have use for and that's almost similar.
